    Bud & Miller to raise prices

    Hopefully this link works.

    Budweiser, Miller to raise prices in the fall - Consumer news- msnbc.com

    They're not making as much money because people aren't buying as much product, so they're going to raise prices. Sounds like a recipe for success.

    Guess I'll be drinking more rum and cokes in the near future...

    I thought alcohol sales were supposed to increase in a recession.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Bud & Miller to raise prices

    Miller owns Coors so I would guess that they will raise prices on both brands.

    Maybe they should advertise less.....
    For companies that sell such watered down beer they should have no problems making money.

    Re: Bud & Miller to raise prices

    It was about 4 or 5 years ago, the total price I paid on a case of Busch Light at QT was $14.97 (that includes tax & deposit) and today, the cost of an 18 pack of Busch Light costs about the same as that case did 4 or 5 years ago :(

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?
